    Default Wish me luck. Lioness with a bow!!!!!!!!

    I am in the final planning/packing/shooting stages of my upcoming lioness hunt with a bow in Africa. This will be my third trip over the pond, but the first 2 were for plains game of which I have been fortunate enought to bring back 13 animals. I guess I decided to step off the deep end and go big with the thoughts of a lioness with a bow. I will be hunting with Harry Nel of African Arrow Safaris. Harry is based out of Ellisras in teh Limpopo, but we will be hunting lioness elsewhere, just not sure were. I trust Harry so I am not worried. I have been shooting extremely well and all my BH's (100 grain Smoke Ramcats, Quad Exodus and the new Gravedigger) are flying well. Not sure if this is going to be a spot and stalk affair or a bait and wait. Hopefully with luck I will have some internet service and can give updates as the hunt progresses. It sure has been hard sleeping at night knowing I fly out of Dallas on the 8th. Wish me luck!

    Not sure where we are hunting. Supposedly an 8 hour drive from J'oberg. I leave all that up to my PH, whom I trust without question.

    Be one with the "Force" Young Mud! Get into a zone...focus on the task at hand. Best wishes my friend!
    The will to succeed isn't nearly as important as the will to prepare to succeed.

    All the best Mudslinger. Another dream becoming reality. Pursuing a female lion with your bow is awesome, after all she is the apex hunter in the pack. Now it's your chance. Enjoy every minute. Can't wait to hear about your story.
    When I am not hunting, I am thinking about hunting....I think I'll go hunting.
